Marinated Skirt Steaks with Chimichurri

2

20 minutes plus overnight marinating

Prized for its flavour, this longer, thinner cut of steak from the diaphragm area of the cow has a looser texture than a sirloin or rump. It benefits from marinating and charring quickly - this is a steak best served rare or medium rare, or it can become tough and chewy. This Argentinian inspired recipe uses a citrusy marinade to tenderise the beef and is finished with a punchy fresh chimichurri from the Made by Farmdrop range.

Here’s how you do it

  1. Peel and grate the garlic. Mix with all the other marinade ingredients in a shallow lidded container.
  2. Add the steaks to the marinade, ensuring that the meat sits in the marinade as much as possible. Leave overnight preferably, or at least a few hours.
  3. The next day, take the steak out of the fridge 30 minutes before cooking
  4. Preheat the barbecue or a griddle pan to very hot, add a little sunflower oil if using a pan. Take the steak out of the marinade and season generously with Maldon salt.
  5. Cook for 1 ½ - 2 minutes each side to char then rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing thinly against the grain. Serve with chimichurri drizzled on top.
